's day one on the floor at the republican national convention. donald trump is trying to get the party to nominate the candidate and it led to a very loud and -- unscripted event on the floor. it's not exactly how the party hoped to open festivities here. >> reporter: hello, not exactly. it's the center of the political universe for the next four days and you will hear
convention but that was not at all the scene we saw just a few moments ago. you could call this the last gasp of the never trump movement. these are the republicans who wanted to see anybody but trump the the republican nominee and they felt like this was their last big chance to really fight this out. they managed to force the issue to the floor, demanding a vote. -- or the chance to vote for somebody else later on. listen to how that went over. >> all those in favor say aye. all those opposed to know -- it's no. all those opposed, no. with that, the ayes have it. we are not going to do this again. >> a pretty raucous scene there. one of the most vocal never trump report -- supporters spoke.
>> [indiscernible] >> this is still trump's convention, despite all the chaos on the floor. with some of them walking out. donald trump gets the first chance to put a stamp on this tonight and tonight we will hear from one of his biggest and frankly rarest surrogates, his wife melania who almost never speaks on the campaign trail. here's a preview of what we know about her. and what we might hear from her tonight. >> the slovenian born former fashion model with her own jewelry line, she would be a first lady like no other. she was born -- in eastern europe in 1970. she signed a modeling crime -- contract at age 18, modeling out of new york city in 1996 and in 2005 she became the third wife of the brash billionaire donald trump --
unlike michelle obama or and romney, she's a rare presence on the campaign trail. when trump rolled out mike pence , most of both families were intent -- in attendance but not melania. she said she prefers to stay in new york with the couple's 10- year-old son. she accompanies donald trump on the trail rarely and speaks even less. in her last public remarks three months ago in milwaukee, she heaped praise on her husband. >> i'm very proud of him. he's a hard worker. he's kind. he has a great heart . he's tough, he's smart. he's a great communicator. >> the entire speech lasted just 90 seconds. her term at center -- time at center stage will be a lot -- a little longer at a few minutes but few speakers will have a more important task. >> if anybody at -- knows donald trump, it's his wife so i think hearing from her gives people a better idea of who he is probably than anybody else.
>> reporter: in another break from tradition in a campaign that's been full of them, it will be taught -- it will be donald trump himself introducing his wife melania tonight. this could be quite interesting affair as neither one of them is likely to stick to their scripts. >> hard to imagine he would miss an opportunity to at least comment on the chaos that open on the floor today. on wusa9.com our facebook page we asked if she becomes the next first lady, what you think her causes will be? >> they straight up said -- he's straight up said his wife shouldn't work because then she will be unable to fulfill -- fulfill her quote wifely duties. i believe she speaks five languages. can you even speak two? not a trump advocate but she just happens to be married to him -- she didn't choose to be first lady.
as for the convention itself, the first day focuses on security and immigration. vice president pick mike pence is in cleveland with donald trump on the way , as you heard. in addition to the speech from melania tonight, the couple's children will be center stage all week long. john kasich is not endorsed trump and is keeping the convention. there is speculation that her vice presidential nominee will be with her. among those reportedly on her short list are virginia senator tim kaine -- corey booker and secretary julian castro. this is her today addressing the naacp convention in cincinnati, ohio. we now have brand-new information concerning yesterday's killing of three law enforcement officers in baton rouge, louisiana. state and local officials are confirming the shooter was 29- year-old gavin long, a former marine sergeant in kansas city.

during the van ride. judge barry williams, an african-american said the failure to seatbelt may have been a mistake, or it may have been bad judgment but there was no evidence it was a crime. it was an outcome similar to the three previous police trials. >> once i went in that courtroom, my views changed somewhat. you could see on his face the judge was like -- >> the bottom line is they have not been able to secure a conviction. there are no more theories. the state really have to think hard about not prosecuting anymore -- has to think hard about not prosecuting anymore. >> so now it is three acquittals and a mistrial so far in the freddie gray cases. the prosecutor here citing a gag order has not made any
